Monochrome Monday #8: Northern Family


"Northern Family Motel"
Potsdam, NY - July 2006 (Click to embiggen)


Yes there's a story behind this photo, but unless you're me or my son or especially care about lodging options in Potsdam, NY it's probably not a very interesting story.
This is Potsdam's Northern Family Motel, one of a handful of family run lodging establishments in town. It's clean, inexpensive and they have some pretty neat stuff on the lawn. This shot was taken on the last day of our trip for freshman orientation at SUNY-Potsdam.

I like this, it's a very nice shot.

I hesitate to say it, but this wouldn't look bad in sepia... and I don't really like sepia. The subject suggests something older, thus, for me, sepia would be acceptable.

I like Aileni's thoughts. It does look like a really aged image and certainly feels like a stroy behind it.

I like the old wagon, they look great in black and white.

Good capture, but I do wonder what the photo looks like in colour. ;-)

Thank you for your tips about sepia last Thursday. It got me playing around with it a bit more!

Black and white works well with it but I wonder how it would look in sepia too. That wagon looks like back in sepia times...
I'm playing twice this week.

That's a really cool shot.

You are right, that song was suggestive enough without the lyrics I thought I heard. Hee hee.

Have a lovely Monday.

Nice capture. I like the black and white. Since everyone's talking sepia tones, I can see that in this image too if you're looking for a really aged look. I think either works. :-)

Have you met Charles Ingalls in the surroundings?

That looks like a wagon from Victorian Era!

Reminds me of the old B& W movies !
